STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Five

AN ACT relative to emissions requirements for municipal waste combustion units.

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

1 New Section; Municipal Waste Combustion Requirements. Amend RSA 125-C by inserting after section 10 the following new section:

125-C:10-a Municipal Waste Combustion Units. All municipal waste combustion units, large and small, as defined in 40 CFR 60.51b and 40 CFR 60.1940, respectively, shall be limited to the following levels of emissions, unless otherwise provided for by a more stringent federal regulation, or by other state statute:

I. Particulate matter: 27 milligrams/dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen, 3-run average (run duration specified in test method).

II. Opacity: 10 percent (6-minute average), 30 6-minute averages.

III. Cadmium: 0.040 milligrams/dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen, 3-run average (run duration specified in test method).

IV. Lead: 0.44 milligrams/dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen, 3-run average (run duration specified in test method).

V. Mercury: 0.028 milligrams/dry standard cubic meter, corrected to 7 percent oxygen, or 85 percent control efficiency, 3-run average (run duration specified in test method).

VI. Sulfur dioxide: 29 parts per million by volume, or 25 percent of the potential sulfur dioxide emission concentration, corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis), 24-hour daily block geometric average concentration or percent reduction.

VII. Hydrogen chloride: 29 parts per million by volume, or 5 percent of the potential hydrogen chloride emission concentration, corrected to 7 percent oxygen (dry basis), 3-run average (minimum run duration is 1 hour).

VIII. Dioxins/furans: 60 nanograms/dry standard cubic meter (total mass), corrected to 7 percent oxygen, where an electrostatic precipitator-based emission control system is employed; or 30 nanograms/dry standard cubic meter (total mass) corrected to 7 percent oxygen, where an electrostatic precipitator-based emission control system is not employed, 3-run average (minimum run duration is 4 hours).

IX. If, at the next scheduled test for any permitted emission at a small municipal waste combustor, the facility achieves a result lower than the existing permitted standard for that particular emission, then the lower, more stringent result shall become the permitted standard. This paragraph shall apply to all small municipal waste combustors.

2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
